Childhood Tales


“A quiet night to begin, little did we know
we were in for a fright”

Words of a child subjected to childhood abuse

No money for a motel
sleeping on the floor
A sudden pounding
stepfather two was
beating at the door
Awakening to slamming
of his fists ordering us
to open the door
Then it was quiet we
wondered why
When suddenly he was
back with a marlin spike
hitting the door with
three more strikes
Swaying at the door
threatening to kill us
we sat in a daze
Once again there was
silence he passed out
Mother told us to run
for the car
We ran fleeing for our

  1. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!


    1. Thank you for your kind comment. They are
      Few and far between and this is appreciated.
      It seems I have had ideas that come to mind
      Usually surrounding childhood issues.
      That is how it started for me but then I
      Started writing in a different direction,
      Reading spiritual stories and expanding on
      Them in poetry form. I need to read what
      Others have written to get the inspiration.
      I try to write them as they come and it helps
      To walk away for a time then return and it seems clear what should be repositioned
      And written, sometimes.
      I think if it takes you 15 or 20 minutes to
      Begin writing it is not a waste of time,
      It is simply a time to reflect and allow
      The thoughts to take form. 15 or 20 minutes
      Is very little time to start writing. I admire
      You for that. I hope this helps and again
      Thank you for visiting my website. I wish
      You the best in writing.
